>> some of them grow to 100 pounds so i hope it is good eating. there are a couple of things that are concerned to me and i would like to get through in five minutes i could. one is something that ms. captor and i sent you a letter on and that was draft pr notice 2010 x. and you were kind to send a letter back to me. it was mr. owens did a system administrator. u.s. epa draft 2010 has to do with false or misleading pesticide product brand names and here is my concern.
>> the expert at the time was a model for many countries as well. i engaged with the prospect with other aspects having to do with libya. now we are back to square one. because of the war situation, and leap year. i don't know how it's going to end up. i'm sure it's not going to be a happy end. now i'm working with the foundation, it's a think tank in london as an analyst. thank you. >> you just got back from libya
is few days go? >> yeah, i backtracked nine days ago. >> thank you. >> i'm richard, i was british ambassador in libya from 1999 to 2002. i must the civil servant here, because i'm the only person wearing a tie.

move aside the most damaging element, namely the gadhafi family. and the fourth scenario is deepening disorder and civil breakdown. so that's as far as i can get. as of today, the situation is changing from day to day. >> i think it's fair to say this is the particularly ominous days. we look back at two weeks of protest. there really was a sense of being in a military phase with the sense being taken and retaken. i just wonder before we opened questions, i could ask you instinctively, if you feel this is the end for colonel gadhafi. davis? >> i hope it's the end for colonel gadhafi. i think there's two scenarios. we can discuss that. one the country is by foe
